According to the filmmaker's notes, these scenes show the Alaska ferry M/V Tustumena arriving at Kodiak, Alaska, in 1964. Construction of the vessel, which is part of the Alaska Marine Highway System fleet, took place in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, and was completed that same year. You can read more about the vessel at the Alaska Marine Highway System website (Color/Silent/16mm film).
